Welcome to the Daily Gossip: your daily stop-off to find out who in the world of music has been up to what.

Today’s top gossip:

The Spice Girls are rumoured to be reforming to open the London 2012 Olympic Games, according to reports. The girl group's manager Simon Fuller said the time frame of the games would be perfect for a reunion to take place, adding that the band want to perform again before they are too old. "They will not want to be performing hits like 'Wannabe' in their 40s, but it's amazing how often people talk about another reunion. And I think if they do it, it's going to be in 2012," he explained. London 2012's opening ceremony is set to feature a gig showcasing some of Britain's most famous acts, according to organisers, and Fuller thinks The Spice Girls would be perfect for the event. "They stand for so much in British music history and I can't think of a better time for them to get back together for another performance. The demand for them as a band is as strong as ever" (Daily Mirror).
